MY
JOURNEY

I’m ANNIKA TELL. An entrepreneur, investor, sales manager and a mother of three young kids.

I was always under the illusion that once I have kids, I’d become a stay-at-home mom but when that moment arrived, I felt that I loved my work too much to give it up. I decided to keep working and ever since then, I am continuously searching and discovering ways to be effective at work whilst finding enough time and attention for my children and husband.

I was extremely work oriented before I had my children. Sales, recruiting and training sales teams, and managing the sales organization have been my main areas of expertise over the past 15 years. I have also delved into the world of investment on the side of all this.

Professionally, earning the first place (out of 2000 participants) for the highest sales in the oldest direct sales companies in the US and building an international sales organization from the ground up have been some of my biggest achievements.

Why Inspire Moms To Lead? Why Moms? 

First, I am a mom myself and second, over the past 15 years, I have been talking to around 10000 moms about their life, kids, family, and values. I have met moms who keep dedicating to their career and have left their family a little bit behind. I have also met moms who dedicate 100% to kids and family and feel that during the time they spend home with kids they do not grow much professionally in their career. The goal of this blog is to show that one does not exclude the other.

Kids teach us a lot about sales and leadership. And vice versa. Being in sales and leadership we learn a lot about raising kids and running a successful family.

Life brings us lessons all the time. If we don’t take time to think about them it is so easy to forget them and repeat the same mistake over and over again. I created this blog to write down my own lessons of life and little stories from my work and family. I hope you find something here that also clicks with you or reminds you of a similar lesson you had in your life. That way we can share the journey to become a better version of ourselves.

Anything is possible

Anything is possible, if you think it is worthwhile
If you’re willing to go the distance, to go the extra mile.
With determination and effort, you can often achieve more
Because you don’t always get what you wish, but what you work for.
Dreams can become challenging, but no matter what the cost
Strive to complete the task before you, and you’ll never end up lost.
So bring with you your goals, and leave your doubts behind
Whether you think you can or can’t, you certainly will find
You’ll be right either way–so never quit, and this is why:
You’ll never become a failure, until you fail to try.
